Why Read This Report

AccuRev is a relatively new product in the software change and configuration management (SCCM) space. As such, it lacks some features that are common among its competitors, especially in the areas of change management and reporting and analytics. It is also weaker than the competition when it comes to platform support, security, and proven scalability. AccuRev's greatest strength is its elegant and effective stream-based approach to development: One customer acquired AccuRev after "falling in love with the StreamBrowser." Support for geographical distribution is also a strong suit for AccuRev; AccuReplica provides read-only repository replications to improve performance in low-bandwidth conditions. AccuRev is designed as a replacement for IBM Rational ClearCase, and it is best suited for companies looking for an alternative — and more cost-effective — stream-based SCCM solution.
